First Lines: "Oh, for the love of... someone just shoot me now, please."  I groaned, eyeballing the line of over-processed, identically dressed sorority girls waiting to get into Fire and Ice along with us.

Synopsis:
Hell hath no fury like a witch done wrong. Pissed off and packing an arsenal of witchy mojo, Martha is on the warpath. Determined to avenge the murder of her mother and grandmother, her mission is simple: kill every vampire, demon and underworld bastard she comes across, because one of those hell beasts might be the monster that stole her childhood from her. But when a sexy Latin vamp literally falls from the sky, saving her from becoming an undead Happy Meal, she has no choice but to reassess everything she thinks she knows.

Xan is an anomaly --a vampire born, not turned. A powerful warlock who walks in daylight, Xan spends his days, and nights, watching over Martha, protecting her from Lucian, the blood-sucking monstrosity whose sole mission in death is to drain her dry. Undeniable attraction and the promise of pleasures untold draw the two lovers into a frustrating dance of one step forward, two steps back. When Lucian throws down a deadly ultimatum, Martha is forced to choose between relying on her own mystical woo woo to save the lives of her stolen friends or succumbing to the lure of dark, voodoo magic. Xan and Martha must work together to save those closest to her and put an end to Lucian's reign of terror before it's too late.

My Thoughts:
I've been waiting eagerly to get my hands on Pleasures Untold and when Micha from Omnific asked me if I'd like to review a copy I was over the moon. 

If you've read Eve of Samhain, you will have already met Martha.  She was the quiet girl that rarely makes an appearance at the apartment in the first book.  This time we get a bigger picture of what she is like. 

Martha was a great main character.  I liked how Lisa portrayed her as a kick ass hero but also had her insecurities too, like worring about losing her friends and Xan.  With a past like hers it definitely rings true for me.  You never completely lose those insecurites no matter how kick-ass you become :)

But it doesn't stop there.  Taylor and Jessica were fantastic characters and proved to be good friends to Martha.  I loved how Taylor was an aussie chick, although maybe one saying in there had me thinking about whether we used bunyip in our slang.  I know I don't lol.

The story is gripping and full of action and magic.  In Eve of Samhain it doesn't show much of what Martha does but this one opens up the field to include vampires and all sorts of hideous things.

As always Lisa has done a fantastic job on Pleasures Untold and I really enjoy reading her style of writing, smooth and straight to the point.

For those of you that enjoyed Eve of Samhain, Pleasures Untold is a great paranormal read and one I think most people would enjoy!

Fave Line: "For someone who looks like a bush pig, I wouldn't be so quick to insult other people.  Now rack off." - Taylor
